TStar, I honestly don't know what to say. That's SO COOL beyond words. I can't wait until the vid/track comes out.

I'm thinking about stunt tracks. The possibillities are endless.
Making car stacks, houses,custom ramps, boats ect. to jump
over or bounce off of! Import the Simpson family and
run over them. :roflol:

My first custom block? Depends on what blocks the environments provide from the start. It also depends how you actually make the custom blocks, as I don't have any 3D editing programs (or skill, at all).

If I could though, I imagine I would make various types of road hazards (like the pillars in Stadium), as well designed placement of such hazards is fun and some of the environments are... severely lacking in that department.

I like that maniacity concept. I have the garage pack, the pack with the Eiffel Tower, and the house-pack 2.
I really dont want anything of the babes packs, because im 11 and then you dont want to see dressed up ladies in a game.
I want a pack with trees so i can continue on my tracks. And the autoscooter and playboy pack from the Funfair.
I want them cuz then i can create a really big city with a funfair, a forest, a eiffel tower and such things.
That would be great!

a huge drive-through-able shopping mall...

or a flaming ring to jump through..

or exploding barrels...

pyrotechnics triggered by checkpoints...

underwater transparent tunnels..

underground caverns and tunnels..

swimming fishes option for water...

waterfall/waterslide...

destructable wooden crates (that don't effect speed when driven through)...

anti-grav block...(hehe)...

fog/mist blocks to impair drivers vision for certain parts of the track (can be done in MT already, but a specific block would be cool)...

disco blocks (basically instead of a DDS file for texture, maybe have a GIF file or something)...

crowd terraces or something, to be placed at certain parts of the map...(louder crowd cheering when closer to the terraces)...but that may be too CPU/GPU demanding to have a crowd.

HotSWAT, the swimming fishes is too something that is included in a maniacity pack!
And those other ideas are pretty fun, but you must know that Nadeo NEVER will make something you could crash in.
BTW, if you want to drive thru a really nice underwater tunnel, i should try out the track Aquatica in the game Need For Speed 3 & Need For Speed 4.

Maniacity the track is released and ive seen something from the playboy pack.
That villa thing is nothing for me so do not think about a misreply.

Umm, what do you mean with "boat anchor"?

Anyways, ive got a new idea.
It would be cool if you can set a sign to a mediatracker camera.
I mean, you can choose if you want a advertisement or something but too a nice cam to make the public in the self-created stand see you everywhere on the track! Good idea yes?

Would that be Live Cam?? place a make on the map from the billboard settings to show racers live feed of what others are doing
foe example place billboard at start line then place live cam feed at a point in the track i.e a loop or corner so that the players at the start can watch others race that section?

i think this could be a great idea

beautiful idea..

1) you place cameras all over the track
2) these cameras transmit their video signal to huge screens in the environment ^^
